5:54 am
the lions. touchdown! >> oh, my, oh, my, oh, my. what happened yesterday? redskins fans going to be talking about this one all day. donovan mcnabb benched at the end of the game during the potential game-winning drive and the redskins lose again to the detroit lions. dave ross here to try to sort it all out. i was in as much shock as anybody else watching that and thinking why do you pull the guy you brought in to be in these situations at a point in the game where i felt like they have a good chance to win this game. >> only down six points, two minutes to go. that is precisely the reason why he is here. the guy has done it before and to pull him inexplicably, i don't think there is any explanation for it. we heard the explanation as to why he did what he did. first things first, the offensive line was terrible. they were terrible all day long. constant pressure on donovan
5:55 am
mcnabb. seven sacks total. mcnabb's numbers seem not terrible. 210yards, a touchdown and one interception. he was down all the time. the offensive line, i know they are trying to make adjustments. they are just not. they are not running the ball effectively. ryan are to rain a little bit nicked up so williams had to come in. clinton portis, you are seeing where his value is. that is why ryan torain does not have a lot of experience. they have to act as the extra offensive linemen when they are out there and they are not helping out donovan mcnabb right now. again, it is hard. this is the last play of the game that donovan mcnabb played. it was a fourth down and he took a sack. that probably irritated mike
5:56 am
shanahan. when you look at it again, he didn't have a whole lot of options there. the frustration i think came out after the game. they asked don and they asked coach shanahan why the quarterback change was made. >> at the end of the game when awe minute left and rex knowing how to run that two-minute offense, felt with the time and no time-outs gave us the best chance to win. >> if you are asking, would you want to be in there, yes. that is something you get measured by, two-minute drives, being able to drive down and win the game. >> he understood why i did it. you have to make the tough decisions. >> the decision was made and i went with it. >> donovan mcnabb did not they his head coach under the bus. of his given ample opportunity to do that yesterday. >> he is a veteran. he knows not to do that. >> i think that is part of the reason why so many people are outraged, because he is classy. when you take him out of a game
5:57 am
